It is time for nationwide summit on insecurity - Okupe

Ex-presidential aide, Doyin Okupe, has declared that now is the time for Nigeria to have a nationwide summit to offer solutions to insecurity in the nation.

In a post on social media named ‘Insecurity And Galloping Inflation,’ Okupe disclosed that productivity has degenerated in the nation which is evident in the agricultural industry caused by the deeds of herdsmen and bandits.

Okupe added that the Nigerian government must immediately proffer solutions to insecurity before it destroys completely the citizens of the country.

As indicated by him, “Whatever economic model subsists in the country, the fact is, our productivity is on a steep decline nationally. This is more visible in the agriculture sector.

“Insurgency, Banditry and Herdsmen/farmers clashes have virtually sent farmers away from their farms while open grazing itself has devastated farmlands across the nation.

“Inflation rate of 18+% is a terrible bad news for the managers of our economy.

“When coupled with ever-increasing food prices, a dual evil of hunger and poverty is unleashed on the populace.

“The Nigerian government must urgently find solutions to insecurity before it snuffs the life out of our people and threaten our very existence.

“An all-inclusive national summit on proffering sustainable solutions to insecurity is NOW a national imperative.”
